If you gave me a word-association test and you said "Eagan," I would immediately say "trees." Eagan has trees. Lots of trees. Green rolling hills with lots of trees. Perhaps you would assume that a community that is able to protect the native beauty of the area would also have a wonderful park system. In this case, you are absolutely right. Eagan ranks nationally as one of the best places to live. Undoubtedly, the local parks factor into this distinction. One of the most unique features of this system is the Holtz Farm, an 80 acre parcel that once produced livestock, crops, fruits, and vegetables. This beautiful farm now provides visitors with an historical and cultural glimpse into rural life from the Great Depression to World War II. In addition, Eagan also maintains 53 other parks covering over 1370 acres.

The next word that would come to mind is "recreation." Eagan has 32 tennis courts, 15 hockey rinks, 41 ball fields, the Trapp Farm Park tubing hill, BMX style bike parks, and other numerous and sundry outdoor recreational opportunities for every age and interest. If you live in Eagan, you have no excuse for being a "couch potato.

Surprsingly, this beautiful city is the eighth largest city in the state, and is a major economic powerhouse for the entire Twin Cities. Many major employers are headquartered here, including Thomson, Blue Cross BlueShield, Northwest Airlines, Lockheed Martin, Midwest Coca Cola Bottling, and a huge US Postal Service facility, to name a few. The local economy benefits from the convenient location; Eagan is just a stone's throw from the Mall of America, the Minneapolis St. Paul Airport, is equidistant to both downtown areas of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Eagan's commercial tax base includes light industry and a strong retail sector.


Housing Characteristics

A quick study of the Eagan MN MLS shows that there are 218 single family homes for sale at an average asking price of about 390K, for an affordable average cost of about $137 per square foot. There are a handful of pre WWII homes for sale at any given time, but Eagan did not experience a construction boom until the 1960's. The average year-built is 1984, and the Eagan MN MLS currently shows about a dozen brand new homes for sale; this number generally only includes spec homes and model homes for residential developments. Notable Eagan builders include Windwood Homes, Metro Classic Homes, Millerville, and Lennar. The luxury home market sometimes includes property with views of Patrick Eagan Park, and design by renowned architects like Mulfinger and Susanka.

The Eagan townhome market is large and varied, but townhome developments are clustered primarily along Cedar Avenue (Highway 77) and Highway 13, creating affordable options for commuters. Eagan town homes are especially favored by airline and airport employees, due to the easy access to MSP Airport.
